Check out the freshest young performing writers as they battle it out to become slam champion. The Rumble Youth Slam is the largest youth poetry slam in Sydney. Held annually by Word Travels, the program involves workshops and slams throughout Western Sydney, culminating in an explosive finale at Sydney Writers' Festival. This year, CPAC is holding a South West Sydney heat for all aspiring poets in the local area. We encourage you to come along and bring your A game, in the hope to make it into the final Rumble. It works like this; young people aged 12 to 18 years are invited to perform at The Rumble heats. Audience members vote for the top artists who will then go on to represent their suburb at the Rumble Youth Slam Final. Bringing rap performances, stories, monologues and poems to the stage, each performer has just three minutes to wow the crowd. No props, no music – just the performer, a microphone and the spotlight. Performers must be 12–18 years old. The Rumble's aim is to provide an opportunity to empower young people to share their voice on a major stage.
